[overlapping speakers]. >> i'm shocked that there is staging going on at political events. >> no, you are right. staging happens at political events. and we were told this was a relief rally. >> right so they were restoring what people should do for overs. >> no the red cross said we done want supplies. >> 30 seconds, you two, i need a me diction, duf, and your credibility is on the line. >> i think it is going to be very close. >> jennifer: are we going to do
very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leaning on big virginia names for some help. senator mark warner and republican gov. bob mcdonnell. >> w
," endorsing president obama based on his leadership on climate change. >> five days before the election, the news on the jobs market is, well, kind of mixed according to important news. filer americans filed for unemployment benefits 363,000 below what was predicted and low enough to suggest employers are hiring again. that is good news but not worth the super storm preventing new jersey and washington, dc from reporting so the governor made estimates. and planned layoffs jump by 40 percent during october, the highest level in five months and it is economic to downsize as they try to make earnings goals by the end of the year. and now to the set with john bussey. we are looking at how the jobs we in the private sector are shaping up. gear shaping up to be the biggest gain since february, a very big and important move. if you get a paper paycheck, their name could be at bottom it, private sector numbers, obviously, and it is one that we obviously watched to predict what going on. they recently redid how they figures this out and trying to make it look like labor department numbers. >>she
difference. people are hungry for a change and plan for the future. president obama has not offered a vision for the next four years and i think that's where romney has turned this election around. and i've got a plan, i'm going to get this economy going again. we don't need -- by the way, reorganizing government. i was in the cabinet to reshuffle the chairs of the cabinet. this government doesn't need a reorganized cabinet of jobs and business. what it needs is a president that understands business. >> very quickly, the hispanic vote, does romney have to win to get the state of florida? >> i think romney is going to do much better with the hispanic vote in florida than any other state. >> that's a given because of cubans but is 40 the magic number? >> i think 40 is a very good number for him. >> that's what we'll be watching for. mel martinez, thanks for coming on. >>> supersized panel, everything. i supersized everything. i've got david gregory and a supersized panel. first, the white house soup of the day, one of my favorites that i never got to try, black bean chorizo. many of the networ

not provide the people any money. fortunately with the obama administration this has changed and these people are coming back and being able to be given some money, so on the federal level i think there's some improvement. when it comes to san francisco i think we need to do more, and i would research this further and answer that question later. thank you. >> all right thank you sir. >> i am under the assumption i'm a problem solver. first you have to identify the problem and i would lump this into three groups. you have people who do not want to be helpedda that want to be live on the street. you have people that don't know where the help is and people people that want it and we need to identify the people that want to be helped that can be helped and there are certain people no matter what you do they do not want help. they want to live on the streets and that in turn we should enforce the laws on the books, and that is the only way i believe you can solve the problem. it's not about money. it's about identifying the problem and i believe you've got to identify who the homeless people a
the if you are debate. president obama was ahead and 98% voters didn't change their mind but 2% switched in favor of homicidal. who is actually going to show up and vote is the question. our model suggests there will be 2% more democrats nationwide than republicans. that is not be quite as good as 2004. if that holds, it's going to be very close election, probably slight edge with governor romney. >> sean: independents, we keep looking at these numbers. that is grouch by seven or eight points, president obama won -- there is a 16-point swing in many of these polls. is that the difference? >> it is the difference. if you go to some of the battleground states, independents by definition are going to pick the winner of that state. that is huge. i think the other thing that not talked about enough, generation gap. a whole lot of attention about the young voters. that are going to vote for president obama but don't know how many will show up. seniors are leaning toward governor romney and enthusiasm is way up compared to 2008. >> sean: if you look at the independents and add the intensity and
want to see what he has to offer because i don't think i have seen all the change. >> obama is actually recognizing gay people as a voter. i believe that obama is just dragging us down and we need someone to lift us up and be positive. mitt romney is that positive force for us. >> you are like a radical feminist, right? >> i think feminism is people wanting equal rights than men and since i am a feminist. >> i sure do appreciate knowing that. >> are you concerned about the benghazi scandal and how that effects things. >> it should have been handled differently, yes, but i don't think it has to effect oat election. >> you know the obama girl. >> i do, very well. ♪ because i have got a crush on obama. >> obama girl likes obama because he was attractive and she was in love with him. >> i think romney is very attractive. >> i love romney. i love his wife. she is gorgeous. >> obama. >> i guess he is cute. >> he has a little crush on me. >> where do you get your news and information from. >> i get minus from a lot of online resources. >> yeah, she gets a lot from twitter. >> do i go on fox

steps to reduce carbon consumption and noted not only president obama's position on climate change, but also on a woman's right to choose and marriage equality as evidence of a vision different from that of mitt romney. the news came as the president returned to the campaign trail, stopping first in green bay, wisconsin. he revived his own slogan of 2008 to question mitt romney's ideas. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly, the very same policies we've been cleaning up after for the past four years. and he is offering them up as change. ( laughter ) he's... he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. ( cheers and applause ) and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. >> woodruff: polls currently give the president a slight edge in wisconsin. but nationally, they are mostly dead even. romney spent his day in virginia, a tied state, telling a crowd in roanoke, that the president is clueless when it comes to business.
but he did have a closing argument. >> i have a plan to execute change and to make it happen. >> and the brouhaha over the next auto bailout... >> allison burns, president barack obama wants new opposition leaders in syria. the change in policy comes after the syrian kraus fails. it crash council fails. -- hillary rodham clinton said we have to protect the country from oppositionests. >> we will be strongly dealing with the syrian resolution. >>> and they met with china's foreign minister to stop it and they are willing to work with the international community but there is more being determined by the syrian people. >>> they are looking to help victims of dan sandy. now if you want to give, give money, not food or clothing. check the name again. scam artists sound similar to legitimate groups and be careful of e-mails. >>> amphibian is set to be closed in an east bay park. now it begins november of every year and that's because california news have to cross safely. they are headed for the pond to mate with other news. knew the crossing. >>> what else are we watching out for t

of us being worried and praying for the victims of this storm are going to change four years of barack obama. >> what about, though, then just the bottom line here, which is the pass of 270 in ohio is difficult. polls haven't changed at all. you talk about momentum, but florida, ohio, virginia. ohio, 50% for the president, 45% for mitt romney. that's outside the margin of error. >> other polls show it very close within the margin of error. i saw a poll right before the storm that had a tie there. but i'll tell you what's key, erin, to look at now. with just a few days left, and that is barack obama has not broken 50%. he's down in the 47, 48, has been for what, the better of two months now? he can't break that number, whether it's ohio or florida or virginia, colorado. and on election day, there's a couple of things that will matter. if you're undecided, they'll break for the challengers. so they'll break with the challengers. we have an amazing ground game. we're going to have our votes out there, the intensity is with us. all the fundamentals of this campaign are with mitt romney and

and thousands of blankets and cots to anyone who needs them. will this quick reaction by the government change the mind of any voters and help president obama? joining me democratic strategist chris hahn, brad blakeman, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why we got rid of articles of confederation and replaced it with the constitution. so one central government could help states work out in situations like this and we're showing that it work. >> brad, i don't
